How our recipients are using their award

My research interest would be looking at single extracellular vesicles (EVs) analysis by flow cytometry. I would ideally want to find a way to use EVs as a diagnostic tool for certain diseases. I am still a student studying at New York University, and this is my first CYTO conference! Thank you so much!

The BioLegend Travel Award will support my research with brain-derived extracellular vesicles and peripheral biomarkers in neuropsychiatric illnesses.
